Some snaps and notes from our moving days...
8am Eyeliner is wonky. I really could use a shower but husband called to confirm the plan for the piano placement. So instead I straighten my hair, fill the to go mug, and head over to the new house.
10:30 Kids move from doing schoolwork upstairs to an empty bedroom
...while we tag team checking in boxes and Alannah directs mover traffic in the lower level
11am First casualty, a big green glass demijohn bottle. Sigh.
Some comic relief
noon lunch break.
Alannah drives Moira to work. Husband and I muse about the possiblity of nodding off.
3:30pm three books randomly fall out of a box. One happens to be the title an adult son asked me to please read. (Soon, I promise)
4pm B is worn out. Abbie is reveling in that moment when you find the box with your toys.
5pm A child reports, "I hear swearing in a bunch of different languages," which confirms my hunch that they have begun to move the piano. God bless them. That was no picnic.
7:30pm Take out pizza and salad for the family. Make a cold meat and fruit plate for myself.
Now comes the unpacking.
